and for the first time we had a trade to talk about. the cubs said goodbye to tony kent canada. he was sent to the d- backs to date for minor league pitchers. the fans here are awesome and always awesome to me and the cubs also appeared kind of sad to go but good to start a new thing with the d-backs. alfonso soriano may be traded next. at my age i don't want to be part of a losing team. send a message because i believe in this team and the people we have at my point is that i came here to win a world series. i don't want to go somewhere else and win. but if we have a bad start

i have to think about moving somewhere else because i have no more than two years left in my career. his call contract has been viewed as an anchor round the neck of the cubs. but his value is obvious even at age 37. the legs are a year older and knees and we all get to that point but he keeps himself in great shape working out constantly during the year. i reckon as one of the top five people i have been around in the game for work ethic. rest today ... more from arizona.
